Scheduled maintenance on a 2001 Rav4 does not mention replacement of the timing belt. When would you replace this?
there is no timing belt on a 2001 rav....it has a chain. dont replace it unless its damaged, (and you'll know if its damaged!) I DON'T THINK YOUR ANSWER ACTUALLY GOES ENOUGH INTO DETAIL. YES, IT WOULD BE NICE IF THE TIMING CHAIN WARNED YOU BEFORE IT WENT OUT? BUT I THINK I HAD RATHER CHANCE SOME PRVENTATIVE MAINTENANCE AT ABOUT 60,000 MILES RATHER THAN IT BREAKING OR WHATEVER IT DOES AND THERE I AM SITTING ON THE SIDE OF THE INTERSTATE WAITING ON A TOW TRUCK? WHAT DO YA THINK? Whoa... hold on there tiger (and please, no yelling "all caps"). The question is a good one, so let me clarify - as I own one of these myself. First off - the owner's manual has a "supplement", a second book that goes over the maintenance schedule in detail - including the timing belt. This booklet recommends replacing the belt every 72/mo or 152000kms for the Rav4... which is odd, since it clearly has a chain instead, starting in 2001. In other words, the book is actually wrong (and any Toyota dealer will confirm this).
Secondly, with any of the new timing chains - you certainly don't have worry about it breaking (like in the old days of timing chains). Alloy metals used these days are much much stronger than in the past - and quieter too, hence why many manufacturers have gone back to that design. It's all about durability baby.
So, you really don't have to worry that you're somehow going to be stranded on the side of the road... really. And if you think that you should take preventative measures, try taking your Rav to a dealer and see how they react. If they are honest, they will look at you like you're crazy ;) ... then tell you it's not required. Hope that helps.
The 2000 Mitsubishi Montero 3.5L is listed as an "Interference Engine" under timing belts in the www.RockAuto.com auto parts catalog. This means the valves or other major engine parts will be damaged if the timing belt breaks while the engine is running. So replace it as part of scheduled maintenance. Many manufacturers recommend changing the timing belt every 60K miles. I do not know if Mitsubishi recommends different mileage intervals.
The scheduled 60,000 mile maintenance on a 2004 Chevy cavalier is a fifteen point inspection. The services include rotate tire, inspect underbody, inspect steering linkage, inspect shifting linkage, inspect suspension, inspect parking brakes, lubricate parking brake cables, replace crankshaft oil filter, and change fluid in the crankshaft.
The 1999 Toyota Camry Scheduled Maintenance Guide says replace @ 30,000 miles. However it also says if the vehicle is driven primarily on unpaved or dusty roads then inspect the filter every 5,000 miles. When inspecting it says to "Check for damage, excessive wear and oiliness. Replace if necessary."
Is there a timing chain or a timing gear in a Chrysler 1996 Town and country with a 3.8 liter motor When is it supposed to be replaced?
The V6 engine has a timing belt that's scheduled for replacement every 90 thousand miles. It's strongly suggested the water pump be changed at the same time since everything that has to be removed to replace the pump is already off for the belt replacement. The 4 cylinder engine has a timing chain that does not need servicing. Cheers, Gadget
if it's not on the neighbor's property not a thing you need to get the plans of your yard and find out where you yard ends and where there's begin and if it's not touching you have to replace that fence. Not to mention why would you be bothering your neighbor to replace a fence it doesn't cost heck people do it themselves stop being petty and fix the dang thang.
What are the fence regulations in LA County in regards to upkeep and maintenance and what can you do if a neighbor refuses to help replace a common fence that needs replacement?
If the fence was put in without the neighbor's input, it is likely on your lot. You need to find out whether this is the case. Then repair or replace as you would like, since it is yours. Otherwise, you get their permission to do as you will, if they won't agree. (I don't know what the regulations say, but this has been my experience)
Yes, the maintenance schedule for your 3MZ-FE engine calls for a timing belt replacement at 90,000 miles (or 108 months, whichever comes first). In addition to the belt the schedule also calls for replacement of both the cabin and engine air filters along with an oil change and tire rotation. Not on the schedule but highly recommended is a water pump replacement. All the bits and pieces necessary to reach the pump are already removed…
